Like red, hot peppers?  Does feeling your head heat up like a match on
fire strike you as culinary heaven?  If so, you're in good company.  
Spicy, hot food is one of the fastest growing trends in American
restaurant industry, according to . Our love of all things hot is what's
behind the rise of fast food Tex Mex chains across America.

What Makes a Pepper Hot?

A compound called "capsaicin" is responsible for the "hot" taste of
peppers. Scientists measure how hot peppers are using something
called a "Scoville heat unit" or Scovilles for short. Capsaicin makes your
muscous membranes swell.

Pure capsaicin is literally too hot to handle. Pure  capsaicin is 3 times
hotter than the pepper spray used in the United States, and more than
200 times hotter than jalapeño peppers, according to a 2012 study
from the University of London, lead by Dr. Jessica O'Neill.

Using the Scoville scale, the hottest peppers in the world are:

The Carolina Reaper. Newly recongnized by the Guinness Book of
World Records, the Carolina Reaper has 2.2 million Scoville units,
making it more than 2000 times hotter than your average jalapeno

The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. This pepper has between 1.5 million
and 2 million Scoville units. It's the ingredient used in most pepper
sprays by police.

The Trinidad Scorpion Butch T Pepper. This bad boy was cultivated
by Butch Taylor of Zydeco Farms in Mississippi. This pepper has
1,463,700  Scoville heating units.

Bhut Jolokia.  According to a 2008 report from New Mexico State
University, the Bhut Jolokia from Assam, India has about 1 million
Scoville heating units. Bhut Jolokia means "ghost pepper", and popular
folklore has it that it is so hot that it can send you to your heavenly
rewards. Bhut Jolokia seeds were brought to the US in 2001 by Dr .
Paul Hosland, Director of the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State
University's Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences.

The Red Servina Habernero. This pepper, which was cultivated
privately in Walnut California by GNS Spices, has up to 577,000 Scoville
heating units. Other tests have indicated that this pepper can reach
347,729 Scovilles (Orange variety of habernero) or 248,556 Scovilles
for  Red Savina habaneros.

Peruvian White Habernero. This pepper can reach 350,000 Scoville
heating units.
